  1. yes,you should be fine
  2. ^ agreed. You'll be fine. You could even 2 670s on that psu
  3. I was hoping that in the future I would get 2 670s. I got told I would need a 850 watt to 1000watt psu for overclocking and good to have extra "headroom"

    It's not a bad idea to have an 850W psu but 650W is more than enough for two 670s and an overclocked 3570K.

    Look at review from HardOCP, TechPowerUp and XbitLabs. They're all running 2 670s and an overclocked and/or more power hungry CPU and power consumption under load is still below 600W. Your psu will be fine for 2 670s and an overclocked 3570K.
